Reviews

"Corral nimbly bridges the personal and political, evoking themes of migration to ask what it means to be unwanted."--The New York Times Book Review, New & Noteworthy "The lyricism of this writing pulls us toward wonder, before, an instant later, documentary fact returns us to horror."--The New Yorker "No matter what his subject, Corral is a gifted storyteller, precise and dizzying with his imagery."--The Millions "Each poem exists as its own small story, using Corral's gift for imaginative prose to establish an intimacy between writer and reader in only a handful of words."--Willamette Week "Devastating and electrifying. . . . Shot through with the dark realities of human tragedy, Corral's latest is a virtuosic compendium of grief.--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Eduardo Corral's ravishing new collection begins with a ceremony of touch-hunger and self-abnegation. . . . An erotics of loneliness, a deep song of exile, of indefinable yearning. At times, even the text itself blurs. It's as if I am reading through smoke, through tears."--Diane Seuss "These poems step 'into the grit / & whirl' of the desert like a fervent saint: devotional, rhapsodic, divine. . . . Guillotine is a timely, excoriating, and captivating book born of perilous times."--D. A. Powell "A master artist. . . . Only a poet as skilled as Corral could connect rejection from the US nation-state with unrequited love to such effect. Carefully code-switching between Spanish and English, Corral is a poet to be studied for his radical contributions to the American canon."--Natalie Scenters-Zapico
